This was a good video showcasing their final product before today's patch release.

I have a few questions over how a 'destroyed' object simply falls over instead of actually blowing up or falling apart, but as far as the actual map is concerned, that is a stunning rework.

They took away a lot of LRM vantage points, but it also added several in that I see can be exploited, especially in the starport and loading dock areas. Sniping roosts also got moved, but some appear to be in even safer positions now than before. They did try to remove the most obvious places, but I foresee someone finding ways around that. Biggest gift for brawlers though was that rocky cropping in the river. That turns a no man's land into an actual passable location now, possibly even a fighting position, though it does seem to be directly on top of a previous cap point, so not sure where that got moved to.

We are going to have to really look at this new map as all of the old fighting points have changed. Those of you who do comp matches have a lot of work to do before fighting on the new map. Good luck!
